Helmut Marko, a Red Bull advisor, said that Pierre Gasly had problems gaining positions in races.
The decision Red Bull Racing to replace the French Pierre Gasly by thai Alex Albon did not surprise the paddock of the F1 since for a long time they had been talking about the disagreement that the Austrian team had with the performance of the Frenchman.
Helmut Marko, an advisor to RBR, gave the exact reasons for the decision and obviously did not make Gasly look good. "He has problems in traffic, loses positions and cannot overtake", explained the former pilot in statements to Car picture.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN 2020
In the first twelve races of the year, Gasly's performance contrasted with Verstappen's. Although he added nine races, most of the time he made it outside the Top 5. In fact, he has a fourth best result at the British GP and a fifth place at the Monaco GP.
Gasly will finish the season at Toro Rosso occupying the place that until now was Albon. During his time within the Red Bull B team, he played 26 GP's between 2017 and 2018 and his best finish position was fourth at last year's Bahrain GP.
